'm shepard smith. this is the fox report. it's the bottom of the hour. time for the top of the news and nato reports it has a military plan ready should it need to defend turkey from an attack by syria. that statement is its strongest since syrian forces last week began firing shells across the border into turkey. it also ignites new fears that that vicious civil war in syria could soon turn into a regional conflict. a civil war that activists say left more than 30,000 people dead. syria claims the deadly artillery attack last wednesday was an accident, an outcome of that civil war. but it's important to note that many rebels used turkey as a safe haven to launch attacks against the syrian regime. so there is that. now turkey reports it has moved additional military assets to the border region, including more than two dozen f-16 fighter jets. jennifer griffin on the top story at the bottom of the hour. she's live at the pentagon tonight. it looks like it can be contained? >> well, there has been six days of artillery fire across the border between syria and turkey. at first it looked like it
at the border in recent months. they asked nato allies to meet for a late night session. for 18 hours after the initial shell was fired near a border crossing used by the opposition, they fired guided artillery back across the border at syrian targets. >> from our perspective, the response that turkey made was appropriate. >> strong words, but little action followed. the obama administration attempted solidarity, but made clear it had no intention of intervening, even though the nato charter says an attack on one is an attack on all. >> turkey is a core ally of the united states and this sort of cross border military activity is very destabilizing and must be stopped. >> we are outraged by the syrian government's actions along the turk irk border. we stand with our turkish allies. >> the leadership realized its miscalculation and offered an apology. >> deepest condolences of the government of syria were presented. >> the turks took the issue to the u.n. security council where russia has consistently blocked any kind of action against the syrian regime. >> neither nato nor the u.n. security

that the war on terror's over, al-qaeda has been defeated. the nato intervention was a success. that's one reason why their explanation of what happened on september 11 has been distorted, beginning with the idea it was a spontaneous reaction to the famous muhammad film. whether that's a coverup or ideology blinding reality, i don't think we know but the house committee needs to look at whether ideology blinded them before the attack. >> you advised the romney campaign. do you think the investigation by the house committee has political overtones? >> i'm not sure how much the house committee's going to be able to do before the election. the state department has its own administrative review board. that won't report until after the election. my guess is that it will be news organizations that uncover whatever additional facts come out before the election. i think there's a clear national interest, whatever the outcome, that we need to know whether the administration's policies themselves prevented adequate security in libya, egypt, tunisian, yemen and elsie. >> do you think the policies pre
behind their ally. they have warned the united states, turkey and the other nato allies they will not allow the kind of humanitarian corridors or no-fly zone or any type of intervention the way things began in libya. the other thing we learned is a number of the fighters inside syria are not necessarily syrians fighting for their freedom. but foreign fighters. hezbollah confirmed one of their leaders and several of their men have been killed inside of syria doing quote their jihadist duty whether they are they were fighting alongside the syrian forces or their own militia. a lot of outside help going to help prop up syrian president bashar al-asaad. bill: a top democratic pollster accusing the media of protecting the president. >> any other president democrat or republican would be crucified while the council was still smoking to go to las vegas for a fundraiser instead of being in the oval office doing his job. bill: is the white house getting special treatment from the white house, from the press? fair and balanced debate on that. martha: top lawmakers are accusing the
. the nato commander says the alliance is ready to step in to defend turkey from syrian aggression. leland vittert is keeping an eye on this very serious situation live from jerusalem. leland? >> reporter: jon, what's most concerning right now is that those artillery skirmishes between the syrians and the turks are continuing unabated. we are now beginning to get to the second week of those artillery skirmishes which are continuing. the nato chief of staff is saying that he is ready and his forces are ready to defend turkey against outside aggression by syria. and this comes as turkey is now beefing up its artillery, tank military presence and then also moving forward some f-16 fighter jets, forward deploying them to near the syrian border which has become increasingly intense over the past week or so. this can serve not only as a warning to the syrians, but also a little bit of trying to cool down tensions inside of turkey. nato is trying to keep this from escalating into a full war, but from the syrian perspective, this nato warning certainly puts the feeling that if there is a war betwe
they invoked the defense clause of the nato treaty and called for an emergency meeting in brussels. the other thing turkey has been doing over the past month or so is massing forces along their border, and those forces both the tanks and their artillery was used in artillery barrages that lasted about 18 hours against targets there inside syria. as for the syrians, they say this was an accident, they promise it will not happen again, and it appears as though the syrians have enough problems on their hands, they do not want to start a war with turkey going forward, though, you do have a dangerous dynamic set up here. all of a sudden now curbing key is on a war footing. it is ready for respond. if the syrian rebels under a swag operation launched a shell into turkey to try to draw a response that is something that could turn he's artillery barrages in an all-out war that could happen in a matter of a couple of hours in the middle east. right now the next 48 hours are going to be the most critical. we think the syrians have decided to take their licks, they have not yet responded to the t, rsk i

to the surge of deadly attacks on nato troops by afghan soldiers in recent months, known as gray on blue attacks. senior military analyst oliver north is imbeddeded with u.s. special operation forces in afghanistan and, lieutenant colonel north is streaming live from just outside of kabul. colonel? >> reporter: gregg, there is a remarkable number of young americans, out here, who are in harm's way, they have taken on the mission of helping the afghans begin to defend themselves, knowing there is a deadline and that deadline was set by the commander-in-chief, that you a us combat force are going to be out of this country, by 2014. that has many people concerned and some think it is one of the reasons why the green on blue attacks have increased. here is just some of what we have been seeing on this trip. today we traveled to remote out post where three marines were killed on a green on blue attack, and, we asked about the effect of the incident. >> in the aftermath of the events, has anyone come and said, we are sorry about what happened? >> sir, we have become like one of the village, on
at at an event in chicago. bill: nato has a plan to protect turkey as it rages in syria. leland vittert is live in jerusalem watching all this as the violence with turkey, is it getting better or worse or worse, leland. >> reporter: it's about the same. the syrian syrians send a shell over, the turks respond with a an artillery barrage. this is day six or seven of this and it's very concerning. theurks are beginning t amass men, equipment, f-16's are goi going. they don't thing things are going to get worse and nato is there to defend. second of all it cuts to the syrians as a warning. remember the west has been loathe in order to try to military intervene in syria. if a war breaks out between turkey and syria it's very clear the gloves will come off. bill. bill: there is a bombing in damascus, how significant was it this time? >> reporter: another very big bombing is coming from the al-qaida off shoots operating inside syria. it shows how many foreign fighters are coming into the country, inside syria, these are hard-core jihaddists organizing car bombs against some of the syrian leadership pl
is part of nato, so turkey could invoke the collective defense clause of that treaty and it would draw on the united states and other western allies to recollect and defend turkey if it gets into a war with syria. the other dynamic, the syrian rebels need help. it could be a point that syrian rebels launch shells at turkey to try and start a war that obviously they would get a lost help from going up against the common enemy, president bashar al-assad. >>trace: and the syrian rebel, how are they doing? >>guest: they have not been doing great but this week they did get some good news in an unusual victory. they took over a syrian air defense space which means they got the missiles inside that base, and if they can figure out how to use the missiles against president bashar al-assad's air force that could change changes because the air force was pugs away at rebels and now we see a nasty side to the rebels. they put out a video where they threatened to execute some 50 iranian hostages if others are not released by the syrian government, and the iranian government, who have been a biggest
officials believe that at least some of the 97 u.s. and nato troops murdered by afghan security forces over the past 30 years were killed because they were culturally insensitive. that's right. it was their own fault according to paul spur re, the best way to deal with this is u.s. troops go through muslim sensitivity training to learn about stuff that is considered insulting in islam. like for example, never show the bottom of boots while sitting or lying across from a muslim. avoid winking or cursing. >> but it is a tick. you can't help it. >> it is my tour retes. >> avoid exiting the shower without a towel. and spur resays many military officials are outraged with one senior army intelligence official telling him, quote, the cultural affront excuse is a bunch of garbage. they are killing us because we are infidels occupying islamic lands. it is what the koran and every imam is telling them, and no amount of cultural sensitivity is going to stop that. i have to go to you, matt. no matter what we do, whether it is -- if we cover the feet, they are still going to hate us. if we don't sneeze
